Guess Who's Coming To Town ....

Noooooo it isn't Santa lol (but he is rumoured to be making an appearance on the eve of the 24th Dec or so they say, time to be confirmed depending on where you are in the world)!

 Hello again Snazzy followers, the wait is finally over ....

Forgive me if I go off on one during this post but I have THE MOST EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL. After months of negotiations I can finally reveal that Snazzy's have secured the U.K debut visit from THE one & only Anna Dabrowska aka Finnabair *oh my giddy aunt* exciting or what!

For those of you who do not know Anna or her work .... Anna is a Mixed Media Artist, Scrapbooker, Art Journaler and teacher. Anna is also one of the designers for 7Dots studio and has created the most amazing paper collections such as Dreamer, Wonderland & Domestic Goddess
Anna currently also design for Prima & Sizzix UK

Anna has the most unique and distinctive style I have ever seen, her eye for composition is just amazing so whether you want to have a dabble at Mixed Media Collage, a Scrapbook Layout, or a journal spread, Anna has something for everyone. Inks and sprays will never be seen in the same light again!

I was fortunate enough along with my other teamie Astrid to take workshops with Anna earlier this year .... all I can say is WOW .... you have to see this lady irl teaching her tricks (truly inspiring). Anna's passion for what she does touches everyone taking her classes. Anna is also a truly lovely lady:)

Soooooooooo .... the workshops will be held HERE on Saturday 31st August & Sunday 1st September 2013. There will be two workshops per day, each class will hold 24 people. You will have the option to book the classes individually or all four together. The workshop class contents are still to be confirmed as Anna is working on new stuff which will be revealed after CHA in January:):):) We will then share the full details with you as soon as possible.

To register your interest in the workshops e-mail Val at with subject header: Anna Dabrowska Workshops

Phew all that excitement .... I need a large G&T lol!

DT Project #1 (Santa Claus Is Coming) - A Winner & NEWS ....

Good morning everyone, wow where did those last few weeks go! Thanks to all the DT for some amazing projects over the last few weeks .... I'm sure you will agree!

With 36 comments going into the pot, the lucky winner of this months prize chosen by Random.Org is ....

 ...... #2 Redanne. Congratulations please e-mail Snazzy's with your details (Subject Winner).

Okay onto business lol ..... this month the design team are working with this kit 

featuring the Carta Bella (Christmas Day Collection), Hero Arts Clear Stamps (Believe) & Ideaology Festive Muse Tokens .... to be in with a chance of winning this kit, simply leave a comment HERE.

My first project is using a blank Artemio 15x15cm Shadow Box which has been painted with Eco - Friendly Acrylic Paint (Pomegranate).

I've applied Fresco Acrylic Paint (Holly) to a texture sponge and randomly sponged over the front of the frame.

A little touch of sparkle courtsey of Rock Candy Dry Glitter & some Ranger Glue n Seal along with a Ideaology Curio Knob

For the centre of the box I cut a piece of cardstock from the collection (Down The Chimney) to size adhered with Cosmic Shimmer Glue. I then used a mini canvas to add dimension to the next layer of cardstock (Christmas Day/Christmas Cards) which was then coverd with the new Ideaology Frosted Film (love love love this stuff).

The strip along the bottom with Santa Claus is coming to town is from the Christmas Day/Holiday Borders cardstock. I will be back later in the week with another project to show you .... until then stay inky!!

Did I forget something *scratches head* ..... ahhhhh YES THE NEWS .... *am sooooooooo excited an I just can't hide it* lol, you will need to stop by the design team blog at 5pm when I will reveal all ..... honest it's an absolute belter!!!!!!!
